Sure, your dog is a good dog, but is she a popular one?

Statistically speaking, Denverite can answer that. Data from the Denver Animal Shelter confirms that yes, there are a lot of dogs here. 22,860 licensed since 2015 alone.

We’ve got a look at the top breeds and names, including what the most popular type of dog is in your zip code.

And here’s where all those dogs are concentrated, plus the most popular name in your area.

Areas with three question marks didn’t have a most popular name. That happened most frequently because those zip codes had very few dogs, either because the zip code is only partly in Denver or very small.

Finally, in a great act of life imitating art, there is only one dog in Denver named Bill Murray. I hear he’s great at parties.
